Grosse Ile (1-0) is coming off of an impressive 41-21 victory over Jackson County Parma Western while Jefferson (0-1) is licking it's wounds from a hard fought 51-26 loss to Ida. Jefferson won last seasons game 21-18 and leads the all-time series 26-23.
Grosse Ile rushed for 234 yards last week and was led by senior Andrew Vollmerhausen's 110 yards. Senior QB Josh Sheppard ran the Red Devil offense efficiently while throwing for a TD and no interceptions. Look for more of the same from the Red Devil offense, but don't be surprised if veteran QB Justin Moores steps in if the Islanders need to air it out. The defense is led by senior DB Josh Moskall and senior DT Dominc Trombley.
Jefferson is led by senior QB Brandon Sovey and senior RB Nick Humphrey. Look for these two to provide a bulk of the offense again this week. Defensively the Bears are led by their LB's Devon Rozmiarek and Cameron Smith.
This should be a good game that I am excited to attend on Thursday evening. Probably a game that either team could win. I still see Grosse Ile as one of the league favorites. Prediction: Grosse Ile 27 Jefferson 21
